The "war on terror" is over, according to U.S. and British officials, who are abandoning that phrase. The British and American governments have instructed all diplomats to stop using the phrase "war on terror." Reflecting the Bush regime's new position, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff declared what the country is engaged in now is a global battle with "weird microscopic mummy insects."
The administrations of both countries feel that the new phrase will add more gravatas and credibility to their recent sagging public support.
"'Weird microscopic mummy insects' is more descriptive, and lets the public know just what kind of menace we are
trying to portray
really up against." Said White House spokesman Tony Snow. "It is important that the message we give is an accurate one."
Eighty-two prisoners of the global battle with weird microscopic mummy insects being held at Guantánamo Bay have been cleared for release, but they may be held months, perhaps years longer, the Washington Post reported, because U.S. officials can’t find places to deport them to. Via Blue Gal
